SUBJECT:               Veterans' Program State-wi 'e Tr~Ili.B.~

The purpose of this memorandum is to announce that the Agency' for Workforce Innovation's,
State Veterans' Program will conduct four veterans' staff training sessions. In accordance with
our Federal Grant and the Florida State Veterans' Plan, four regional sessions have been
scheduled statewide in order to reduce the travel time and costs for regional attendees.

The training session for your region is scheduled for June 29-30, 2010. This training will be
conducted at the Workforce Plus Center, Town South Plaza, 2525 South Monroe St., in
Tallahassee, FL. The training session will convene at 8:30 AM and adjourn at 4:30 PM both
days. All DVOP and LVER staff, including half-time and temporary veteran staff, from
workforce regions 1-7, and 9 should plan on attending this training. The Agency will reimburse
the Regional Workforce Boards (RWBs) for the travel costs for the DVOP and LVER staff.

RWB Executive Directors, One-Stop Career Center Managers, veterans' staff supervisors,
Military Family Employment Advocacy staff and Disability Navigator staff are also encouraged
to attend. The travel costs for these staff members will be paid by the RWB. Please provide
registration confirmations to AWI veterans' program staff no later than close of business on June

The purpose of the training sessions is to provide an educational forum on Veterans' Program
services in the one-stop career center delivery system. To accomplish this; National Veterans'
Training Institute (NVTI) has agreed to conduct their "Case Management Overview" training on
the first day of training. This course will provide valuable information on the purpose, need and
benefits of effective case management in supporting veteran client's employment goals.
Additional case management related training will be provided by Agency staff on the second day
of training.

The R WB' s will review and approve the authorization to incur travel, and pay the travel and per
diem expenses. DVOP and LVER staff should charge these expenses to their local grant
numbers for DVPlO and LVRlO and other staff should charge their travel as applicable. After
all the RWB DVOP and LVER travel expenses are reimbursed, each RWB will provide the final
dollar amount of the veterans' staff travel, by grant program, to Usha Putcha via e-mail at The Agency will issue NFA's increasing each RWB's allocation to
cover these expenditures. Travel advances may be authorized by RWB's in accordance with
state travel policies.
